The Uber Free Ride Credit Is Currently Only Available in the US

Here’s how it works:

  • Go to Galaxy Gifts on your phone
  • Download the Uber app and sign-up
  • A $25 discount (in the US) is automatically added to the phone’s Uber account

Folks without a Samsung Galaxy phone, can still save money on Uber.  When you create a new account using Emily’s link, you’ll get a free ride for up to $20!

3.   Up to 2,500 Southwest Points for Shopping

Miles Remaining writes, you can earn up to 2,500 Southwest points when you shop through the Southwest shopping portal.  This deal ends May 3, 2015, at 11:59 pm Eastern Time.

The More You Spend, the More Southwest Points You’ll Earn

Returns, shipping costs, taxes, gift cards, and certain products do NOT count towards this bonus.

Southwest points are currently worth ~1.43 cents to ~1.7 cents per point (though this may be changing soon!).  And keep in mind, if you use a coupon you typically won’t get points through shopping portals.

So do the math to see if your coupon is worth more than the points!

4.   Save $75 When You Spend $350 or More on Hotels at Travelocity

Book your stay at a participating hotel at Travelocity and you can save $75 when you spend $350 or more.  Use promotional code “TAXDAY75” to get the discount through April 16, 2015, at 11:59 pm Pacific Time.

Travelocity Wants to Save You Money at Hotels When You Purchase by April 16, 2015

Your stay must be completed by December 31, 2015, to get the discount.

Other important terms:

  • Pay Later options and Top Secret hotels are NOT included
  • This deal is NOT stackable with other discounts
  • Taxes, surcharges, and other fees do NOT count towards this discount

Most major hotel chains are excluded.  That said, Hyatt hotels are eligible for this discount.  So this deal might be interesting for folks who have plans for a paid stay at a Hyatt hotel, who plan to stay in a boutique hotel, or who are visiting a small city.

This deal is for Travelocity rate hotels (you have to prepay for your stay).  Be sure your base room price is more than $350 or the discount won’t apply.

5.   Last Chance to Load AMEX Serve Online With Discover, MasterCard, or Visa

I wrote last month that AMEX Serve will only accept American Express cards for online re-loads, starting April 16, 2015.

Many folks are switching to the Target Prepaid REDcard card because you can load your account with ANY credit card at the register.
